The HMS Dockyard in Portsmouth houses many attractions. I think you can walk in, but you will not be able to see the attraction. To see either or all of the following you have to pay and they are not cheap. HMS Warrior, Action Stations,...More

Excellent museums. The HMS Victory and Warrior are absolutely amazing. The Victory in particular was like a living piece of history.

Love this place. I've been with my friend and 'done the works'. We had an awesome time. Been on my own too. Something to do for the day. There's always more to see, learn and do.

Hiya, Unfortunately no, only guide dogs or assistance dogs with the appropriate documentation are permitted on site, this is due to a naval base bylaw as we are part of a working naval base here. Best wishes, VE Team
